HAS. In Himalaya tempfcrata in tempore pluvioso supra arbores et
rupes humidas crescens : Basehir! Garhwal, Royle! Nipal, Watt.! (in
Herb. Hook.) Sikkim, in jagis interioribus, alt. 8000 ped.!—(Fl.
Aug.) (o. v.)
Herba -^-1-pedalis, raofce fibrosa, canle gracili rigido, stricte erecto. petiolis elon-
gatis. Stipula liberse, oblique ovalesj stipella nullao. Foliola rotundaro-triloba, te-
nuia, membranacea, pallide viridia, glaberrima. Flores albi. Sepala elliptic*, nervosa.
Filamenfa flUformia; anthera brevissime apiculataj. Aclienw longe rostrata, rostro
acheuium cequante, apice hamato.
A curious little plant, remarkable for its very rigid habit and pseudo-parasitic
mode of growth. It is more nearly allied to T. glypkocar-pum than to any other
species, but is easily distinguished by its smaller size and the very long beak of the
achenium.
10. T. glyphocarpum (W. et A.! Prod. i. 2); foliis ternatim de-
compositis, panlcula terminal! pauciflora, filamentis clavatis, acheniis
8-15 oblongis brevissime pedicellatis valide costat-is rostro brevi un-
cioato apiculatis.—Wight, Ic. £ 48.
HAS. Per totam Indiam temperatam in sylvis densis et dumetis;
in Himalaya a Simla, 6-8000 ped.! et Kuraaon! usque ad Sikkim in
jugis interioribus, 9-12,000 ped.! (sed nondum e Nipalia allatum) ;
Khasia, alt. 5-6000 ped.! in monte Parasuath, prov. Behar, alt,
4000 ped.!; in montibus altioribus Peniusulae et Zeylaniae!—(Fl! Jul.
Sept.) (0. ».)
Herba erecta, bipedalis et ultra, radice fibrosa. Stipula petiolo adhserentes, reni-
formes, membranacese, fimbriake; stipeUa nullse. FolioU £-l-uncialia, glaberrima,
membranacea vel coriacea, rotundata, obtuse crenato-lobata vel triloba. Panicula
divaricato-ramosa, ramis strictis subracemosis. Jnt/ier<s maticae.
There are specimens of this species in the Hookeriau Herbaiium, from Java, col-
lected by Mr. Lpbb, so that possibly T. Javanicum, Blume, may be the same. The
character given in the Bijdragen is, however, quite insufficient to determine whether
this conjecture be well founded or the contrary; and in any case we think the name
given by Wight and Arnott, who have well characterized the species, ought to be
retained.
^11. T. foliolosum (DC. Syat. i. 175, Prod. i. 12); polygamo-
dioicum, foliis supradecompositis, panicula ramosissima aphylla, bracteis
minutis, aeheniis paucis ovali-oblongis utrinque acutis argute costatis.
—Don, Prod. 192; &oyk! III. 51.
HAB. In Himalaya temperata ubique: occidentem versus in jugis
exterioribus (5-8000), in Sikkim in interioribus tantum; et in mon-
tibus Khasia in umbrosis, alt. 4-6000 ped. 1—(Fl. Aug. Se^t.) (». t?.)
Irecta, ramosa, 3-8-pedalis. Folia maxima, ssepo pedalia et ultra; folioU nu-
merosissima, parva, ovalia, inciso-lobata, maxima vix polh'caria, plcrumque multo
minora. Petioli basi auriculati. Stipelte nullse. Sepala oblonga, obtusa, 5-7-ner-
via, pallide viridia vei fusco-purpurea. Stamina, numerosa; filamenta, filiformia; an-
iheras mucrouatse. Schema S-'T
The Khasia plant is very luxuriant, and generally very large-leaved.
12. T* minus (L.) \ foliis decomposite pinnatis, segmentis varie
lobatis, panicula ramosa ampla, acheniis paucis oblongis vel ovalibus
